The 1863 Confederate States House of Representatives election in Florida was held on Wednesday, November 4, 1863 to elect the two Confederate States Representatives from the state of Florida, one from each of the state's congressional districts, to represent Florida in the 2nd Confederate States Congress. The election coincided with the elections of other offices, including various state and local elections.

The winning candidate would serve a two-year term in the Confederate States House of Representatives from May 2, 1864, to May 1, 1866.[1][2]


Florida seceded from the Union on January 10, 1861 and joined the Confederate States of America. In the 1861 elections, James Baird Dawkins was elected as the C.S. representative for the 1st district, while Robert Benjamin Hilton was elected the C.S. representative for the 2nd district.[3]

Dawkins resigned from Congress on December 8, 1862, with John Marshall Martin winning the 1863 special election to succeed him. Martin did not run for a full term, deciding he was too young to be effective in Congress, opting instead to become an officer in the 9th Florida Infantry in the Army of Virginia.[4]

The candidates for both districts ran unopposed, and their ballots cast for them were not tallied on official results.
